The 21 year-old forward was drafted by the Krakren 131st overall in the 5th round of the 2021 draft from the Acadie-Bathurst Titans of the QMJHL.

Melanson just finished his first season in pro hockey with the Firebirds where he put up 18 in 62 games and was a key part of Coachella's bottom 6 forwards.

After a decent first season in pro hockey, Melanson will surely be only improving from here on out.
